Ghana Premier League Preview: Berekum Chelsea vs Tema Youth- Blues can evict Harbour Boys from topflight
Berekum Chelsea

Berekum Chelsea are 8th in the league, but the relegation threat is clouding over them as they are separated from the bottom three by the virtue of just two points.

The Blues are coming in the back of some terrible form. They managed just one win from the last four.

Randolph Armah’s side were in the safety area weeks ago, but the two-game losing streak got them in the survival fight.

On top of this, they have a good account of themselves at home in the season with 10 wins coming from their 14 games so far.

They can make their home form count on Sunday against another relegation battling side Tema Youth FC.

Tema Youth FC have their hopes of staying up in the topflight for another season depending on a miracle as they travel to the ever difficult Golden City park this weekend.

They are sitting on the 14th position on the league table. Only a point adrift of the safety places.

Is either the Harbour City Boys win on Sunday or face relegation outright from the premiership.

Not even picking one point from the match would save them. A draw this Sunday will send them to the second tier.

Versatile defender Francis Adjetey-Okunko is back to full fitness after recovering from an injury he suffered against Ashanti Gold SC a fortnight ago.

Left back Joshua Oninku remains on the sidelines with an injury.
